Experience the Magic
Abu Dhabi has always been a special place. But until recently, the Emirate remained an undiscovered jewel on the international travel map. Today, more and more overseas visitors are discovering this unique and captivating destination.
Abu Dhabi combines year-round sunshine and superb facilities for leisure and recreation with the spice and mystique of an Arabian adventure. Steeped in ancient culture and heritage of Arabia, the strong tradition of desert hospitality continues to live in the genuine warmth and friendliness that welcomes the visitor.
Abu Dhabi’s location on an island makes it compact and accessible. It’s easy to find your way around and the city is fascinating to explore on foot, by hire car or by hopping in a taxi. This busy metropolis of spectacular high rise office towers, shopping malls, restaurants and superb hotels, interspersed with gracious residential districts looks outwards to the blue waters of the Gulf.
The Corniche is the city’s showpiece. With its beach front location, paved walkways and lush greenery, you will find visitors and residents enjoying this beautiful area at anytime of the day - strolling, jogging, cycling or rollerblading along the waterfront.
The Heritage Village on the breakwater provides a taste of life before the oil era. Its displays offer an insight into bedouin life as well as courtyard houses, wind towers and an example of ancient irrigation system used in the region’s oasis.
